  • Boys Stop Smoking

    I enjoy the Boys' Life archive to no end, and it never fails to turn up a laugh whenever I visit. Today's? From the state-by-state news in Pennsylvania:
    "Boys Stop Smoking
    Edward G. Jenkins, Scout Master of troop No. 11, Honesdale, Pa, Boy Scouts of America,* is highly pleased with the work his 20 Boy Scouts have done in the last four or five months . . . 'If,' writes Jenkins, 'I say that the boys in short time have developed far beyond my expectations and that I am as proud of them as any mother could be, am I not telling you enough of what my boys are doing constantly and the great interest among the people. Of the inveterate cigarette smokers who have quit the habit and are fighting it every day in their heart I could write much.' . . ."

    Full text at http://boyslife.org/wayback/#issue=twUG1X-LzB8C&pg=31

    The only thing I hate is that there doesn't seem to be a good way to print anything from the archive.

    *At the time there were still other scouting organizations getting space in Boys' Life, such as the Rhode Island Boy Scouts and New England Boy Scouts.

      Yeah, it's framed in from Google on Boys' Life's website, note the blank Google ad space at the bottom of issues on boyslife.org.

        OH! Reading the issues on Google Book is SO MUCH EASIER than the archives site on boyslife.org. Thanks, @koolaidman and @Scouter99!
